Stepping into this grand neo-Georgian grade II listed building your eyes are immediately drawn to the splendour of the 8 skylight arched windows that form the ceiling and the plethora of original features that make this venue the jewel in East London’s crown. 

This east london venue offers a range of meeting rooms alongside the large Main Hall, which provides the flexibility to host a variety of events including weddings, fashion shows, Christmas parties, vintage fairs and live events; such as comedy nights, auctions, gigs and music events.

The leisure and Spa facilities offer a relaxing extra to your booking, or a perfect filming location.  

Originally opening as a Turkish bathhouse, the hall established itself as the home of British boxing, gaining international notoriety and being voted the 6th best place in the world to watch live boxing; making it truly outstanding for Sporting events.

Located only a few minutes walk from both Bethnal Green Tube and National Rail stations; along with links to the A12 and City of London; York Hall has easy transport links to Central and Greater London.
